Flocks of Siskins and Redpolls

In a previous post, Joanna described what to see at Fleet Pond during winter including “siskins often flock together with redpolls and these mixed flocks are commonly seen in the areas of wet woodland around the Pond where they feed on the seeds of alder and birch”.


I thought it would be good to have some pictures so that everyone could keep an eye out for them! The siskin is pictured above and the redpoll below.
